Some third-graders in New Hampshire who have been studying prehistoric animals are working with state lawmakers on a bill to make the mastodon the state's official fossil. The students voted on which fossil they wanted to represent the state and are working on the bill with state Rep. David Borden, among others. "It has been really cool. The kids can't believe what's happening, that they can make a difference," said their teacher Thom Smith.
